I tried the following 2 ways:

  1. “<webctrl aaname = '”+invoiceDate.Day.ToString+"'tag=‘LI’/>"

@Cardon_Cezar What is the Error that you get ?

Hi @supermanPunch

For the first try, this is the error:


RemoteException wrapping UiPath.Core.InvalidSelectorException: The selector is not valid —> RemoteException wrapping System.Xml.XmlException: ‘tag’ is an unexpected token. Expecting white space. Line 1, position 148.

For second try, this is the error:

Please let me know if you want the workflow and/or the app’s credentials. I can provide both.

@Cardon_Cezar If you have noticed the Error Message, it is indicating the Selector which you have provided as {{invoiceDate.Day.ToString}} , I don’t think the Selector Accepts a method to be raised inside it, and hence instead of the value, it outputs the the variable name as it is.

you can use a String variable called day and set it to that value, and then use that value.

day = invoiceDate.Day.ToString

Then use {{day}} in the aaname of the selector.

Try it and let me know.
